The Department of Teacher Education and Administration (TE&A) in the College of Education at the University of North Texas (UNT) invites applications for a one-year, non-tenure track Lecturer position, beginning Fall 2022 semester. The position is one that will teach bilingual education; literacy education; social studies, math, and/or science education. The successful candidate will join Curriculum & Instruction faculty in a dynamic undergraduate program leading to EC-6, and secondary teacher certification and in the department’s Masters programs, working closely with department colleagues to reshape and reimagine education from critical perspectives.

Of particular interest to the College of Education are candidates who are committed to improving people’s lives through powerful learning, social-emotional wellness, physical health, civic engagement, and equity-centered education.
